About the School:
Students in the School of Liberal Arts (SLA) enjoy small class
sizes, which lead to active mentorship on the part of our faculty,
who direct students to opportunities they might never anticipate
before coming here. Students perform original research at the FDR
Presidential Museum & Library; present their work at national
and international conferences; share their expertise with community
partners here in Dutchess County; and complete internships in
locations as close as Manhattan or Albany, or internationally
through programs in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Through their
endless curiosity, hard work, and strategic planning,
students--with the help of faculty--prepare themselves to truly
make a difference in the world beyond Marist.
At the core of the educational experience at Marist is our
distinguished faculty. Offering both sterling educational
credentials and deep professional experience, these talented men
and women are deeply dedicated to the education and development of
our students. The members of Marist’s faculty share their knowledge
with our students, mentor and encourage them, challenge them to
think in new ways, collaborate with them on high-level research,
and help them become career-ready. We hear from countless alumni
who reflect back on the significant impact their professors had and
continue to have on their lives. Each and every day, Marist’s
faculty prove not only that outstanding teaching and outstanding
research can go hand-in-hand, but that great teachers have a
lasting impact on their students.

Equal Employment Statement:
Marist College is committed to creating a diverse workforce on our

and upward mobility do not exist here. To this end, the College
will strive to achieve the full and fair participation of
minorities, women, people with disabilities, and any other
protected groups found to be under-represented.
Equal opportunity means employment, development, and promotion of
individuals without consideration of race, color, disability,
religion, age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual
orientation, or veteran status unless there is a bona fide
occupational requirement which excludes persons in one of these
protected groups. The College will review its employment policies

exclude protected groups are identified and eliminated. The College
will also explore alternative approaches if any policy or practice
is found to have a negative impact on protected groups.

practices but also extends to all services and programs provided by
the College. It shall be considered a violation of College policy
for any member of the community to discriminate against any
individual or group with respect to employment or attendance at
Marist College on the basis of race, color, disability, religion,
age, sex, marital status, national origin, sexual orientation,
veteran status, or any other condition established by law.
